Of the 50,000 citizens in the Polish town of Kutno, not one is Jewish – yet it staged perhaps the most impressive concert of Jewish music I’ve ever heard.

The performers were all children from schools in the town, the youngest no more than six or seven. They belted out old hits in Yiddish and Hebrew with a fluency and stage presence that few adult performers could match.

    This is incredible! These people, going back generations, must’ve had a very good impression of, or even friendships with, Jews. Even while most of Europe hated Jews. This is truly beautiful.

    That is nice. Maybe the lost tribes of Israel are beginning to return to their roots.
